Deutsche Welle Festival: Tensions

8.00 Deutsche Welle Festival: Tensions

There's no limit to the imagination of creative people in a crisis, as one sees when "Tensions: Music in the Power Plant in Heimbach" is transplanted to a church in Berlin. The sensational chamber music festival and its unmistakable spirit and aesthetic thrive whatever the location.
